I've had a whack at updating the manual, and attached a diff. This is
obviously just a first try, and I imagine there will be much that needs
to be tweaked. To be honest, several of the examples in the manual
didn't work as advertised when I tried them, but I guess that's a
separate problem -- this is how it's _supposed_ to work, I think.

Two code notes:

- As you mentioned, `gnus-use-full-window' should be obsoleted in favor
  of `gnus-use-full-frame'.
- It would be nice if the size spec also accepted the symbol `fit',
  which would trigger a `fit-window-to-buffer'.

Hope this clarifies things...
